The New York Times bestselling author of Reaper’s Stand is back in her “uber-alpha rough world of MCs”* as one woman’s future is rocked by the man whose hardcore past could destroy her…
He never meant to hurt her.
Levi “Painter” Brooks was nothing before he joined the Reapers motorcycle club. The day he patched in, they became his brothers and his life. All they asked in return was a strong arm and unconditional loyalty—a loyalty that’s tested when he’s caught and sentenced to prison for a crime committed on their behalf.
Melanie Tucker may have had a rough start, but along the way she’s learned to fight for her future. She’s escaped from hell and started a new life, yet every night she dreams of a biker whose touch she can’t forget. It all started out so innocently—just a series of letters to a lonely man in prison. Friendly. Harmless. Safe.
Now Painter Brooks is coming home… and Melanie’s about to learn that there’s no room for innocence in the Reapers MC.
Joanna Wylde has a fantastic thing going with her Reaper’s series. They are some of my favorite biker books. They are always a great and balanced mix of raw, steamy and sweet. Painter’s book had less of the sweet and more of the rough and raw, but I still enjoyed this second chance romance very much.
Reaper’s Fall starts with our boy, Painter in jail. He’s given up his freedom for his club, but he’s close to getting released. While in jail, he’s had Melanie’s letters to get him through.
Never stopped thinking about her, though. Not once. She’d become my anchor.
When Painter returns home, he doesn’t know how to act around her. So he tries shutting her out. Melanie doesn’t stand for that. So Painter decides he can give her friendship, but that’s all. Even though it’s so very obvious they both want so much more.
Melanie and Painter can’t stay just friends for very long. It’s impossible to fight the attraction and chemistry that has been brewing between them. Friendship turns to sex, and sex turns into even more. For the first time ever, Painter is willing to try a relationship with someone. I loved seeing Painter fight his feelings, then say screw it and go get his girl, get what he’s always wanted.
Things for Mel and Painter are perfect… for a short while. Then something changes between them. And Painter makes a choice that costs him a lot.
The last two books have eluded to Painter and Melanie. I was ecstatic to get them together, to get their own story. And there was so much I loved about their story. Painter is an artist, I loved that spin. And Melanie was a nurse- being a nurse myself, I love reading stories where the main character is one as well. Those times in the beginning when they were together and making it work, they left me with the biggest smile on my face.
There were so many great parts, but the big conflict in the story lasted far too long for my tastes. This ‘grudge’ lasted entirely too long and turned a character I genuinely loved (Mel) into a character that ended up annoying me for the longest time. That is the only reason this isn’t a 5 star read for me. Everything else, the writing the characters, the other parts of the story line, they were all spot on.
If you’re looking for a great biker’s series, the Reaper’s is where it’s at. If you’re looking for a second chance romance with a damaged character, an unplanned pregnancy, angst, romance, steam and the cutest kid ever, pick this one up!
“I’d do it again, you know. All of it. I’d do it all over again. Us…It was worth it.”
